The Education Faculty is committed to access, retention and success of its students.  The faculty’s vision is guided by the values and principles of equity, transformation and social justice. In the Education Faculty we prepare school teachers, adult educators, education managers, educational psychologists, scholars, policy makers and community leaders who are well equipped with knowledge and skills to deal with the challenges facing our schools and communities today. Our undergraduate programmes focus mainly on primary and secondary education, from Grade R – 12. The faculty also offers a range of certificates and diplomas as a means of providing access to students who want to deepen their knowledge in the areas of Adult Education, Education Leadership and Management and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). 

  

Our postgraduate programmes expose students to a wide range of research areas that are in sync with the research agenda of the faculty. These areas include Adult Education, Higher Education, Educational Psychology, Educational Studies, Language and Literacy Studies, Science and Mathematics Education and TVET.

Our staff members are committed to innovative approaches to teaching in the 21st century. They engage students in a number of activities that challenge them to experience learning in diverse settings.

A good number of faculty staff members are nationally recognized for their contributions to education research, policy and practice, and for their community outreach projects. The School of Science and Mathematics Education plays a major role in the continuous professional development of mathematics and science teachers in schools, while the Science Learning Centre in Africa plays a significant role in establishing science laboratories in disadvantaged schools in different provinces. The Institute of Post School Studies (IPSS) is leading in the field of adult education, vocational education and higher education, both nationally, and increasingly regionally and internationally.
